Gossard Memorial Library 

Offers Modern Facilities 

Large Increase 
Seen In Student 
Use of New Library 

Since the opening of the new Gossard 
Memorial Library at Lebanon Valley a 
sizeable increase has been noted in the 
number of students making use of library 
facilities for study, research, and other 
types of work. The convenience, com- 
fort, and attractiveness of the new li- 


Fairlamb Recital 
Presented By 
College Lounge 

William Fairlamb, associate professor 
of piano in the Conservatory of Music, 
is presenting a concert on Monday, Octo- | 
ber 7, at 8:30 p.m. in Engle Hall. 

Before coming to Lebanon Valley in 
1947 Mr. Fairlamb studied with Madame 
Olga Samaroff and had a private studio 

brary undoubtedly account to a 
extent for this increase. 

The many new features made possible 
by the spaciousness of the building will 
aid the students and staff in their work 
in the library. All three floors contain 
roomy work areas near the stacks of 
books, with large tables and individual 
desks to suit the needs of the users. 
The stacks themselves are placed so that 
there is ample space between them, and 
all are well-marked by numbers to facili- 
tate the location of desired books. The 
lighting of the building is scientifically 
planned to give maximum illumination 
in both stack and work areas. 

Typing booths are located on both the 
main and second floors and are con- 
venient for using books which may not 
be taken from the library. Students must 
furnish their own typewriters, however. 

Each floor of the library has its own 
individual features to make library work 
more enjoyable. In the basement are 
located all bound periodicals, available 
at all times that the library is open. 
There is also a visual aids room which 
seats 125 people and has an outside 
entrance. Connected with this is a small- 
er projection room which doubles as a 
music listening room for small groups. 

On the second floor are two group 
study rooms and a spacious lounge for 
relaxed reading. These are in addition 
to the regular work areas of the floor. 

On the main floor may be found all 
reference books and unbound current 
numbers of periodicals. The periodicals 
are placed alphabetically at the west end 
of the large study area. 

For music students there is now re- 
served a special section in the east meet- 
ing room on the main floor for all books 
on music and for records. This room 
will soon feature two listening tables at 
which records may be played and heard 
on earphones without disturbing other

in Reading and Lancaster. He holds a 
Bachelor of Music, cum laude, from the 
Philadelphia Conservatory of Music, and 
did graduate work at the Philadelphia 
Musical Academy. Mr. Fairlamb has 
given recitals throughout eastern Penn- 
sylvania, including appearances on the 
Albright College Cultural Series, as solo- 
ist with the Lehigh Valley Symhony Or- 
chestra, and in a Lecture-Recital series 
over WGAL-TV, Lancaster. He was also 
a guest pianist and teacher of advanced 
piano students at the Bay View Summer 
College of Music, Bay View, Michigan. 

The LVC College Lounge is sponsor- 
ing the program on Monday evening, 
which will include selections by Bach- 
Busoni, Beethoven, Chopin, Bartok, Ra- 
vel, and Thomas Lanese. Tickets, 50 
cents for students and 75 cents for 
adults, may be obtained from members 
of the Student-Faculty Council and will 
be sold at the door. 

Chemistry Club Plans 
"Night At Monte Carlo" 

The Chemistry Club will hold its first 
meeting of the 1957-58 school year on 
October 7. 

The business meeting will begin at 
7:45 p.m. in room 132, Science Hall. 
Following this a social meeting will con- 
vene at the home of adviser, Dr. Howard 
Neidig, in Palmyra. Transportation will 
be provided from Science Hall to Dr. 
Neidig's home. 

The unsual theme of the social pro- 
gram is 'A Night at Monte Carlo." 
Games involving the use of chemical lab 
equipment will be set up by the junior 
class members of the club. 

This affair should be of especial inter- 
est to freshman chemistry students who 
wil find the entertainment not only en- 
joyable but informative. All chemistry 
students, however, are urged to attend. 

Plans will be made for field trips to 
various industries throughout the year. 

Moon Men Invade LVC 

After witnessing a week of surprise 
attacks and minor skirmishes, the bewil- 
dered freshmen finally found out what 
the fuss was all about. The gym was the 
scene of the Vets' successful invasion, 
otherwise known as the "Moon Hop," 
on Saturday, September 28. In a setting 
of outer space, complete with moon, 
rocket ship, and music supplied by Ted 
Blumenthal and his "space crew," fresh- 
men and upperclassmen spent an enjoy- 
able evening at the first big dance of the 

Old timers of the Valley well remem- 
ber the unusual antics and surprise proj- 
ects of the Vets, but this time the men 
surpassed themselves. Plans for their big 
attack were first made in May. The 
actual building of the rocket ship, a 
major part of the decorations based on 

Return Appearance 
For String Quartet 

The Juilliard String Quartet will make 
a return appearance at LVC on October 
28 at 8:30 p.m. in Engle Hall. This is 
the first in the new series of "All College 
Programs," designed to bring outside 
events to the campus. 

As last year, the Quartet is sponsored 
by the Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge Foun- 
dation, Library of Congress, Washington, 
D.C. The members of the Juilliard String 
Quartet are Robert Mann and Robert 
Koff, violinists; Raphael Hillyer, violist; 
and Claus Adam, cellist. 

Country-Style Evening 
Sponsored By Clio 

A square dance sponsored by Clio will 
be held in the main gym tonight, Octo- 
ber 4. 

The entertainment will begin promptly 
at 8:30 p.m. when Bert Wittenberg, well- 
known caller from the popular Fresh- 
man Week square dance, begins calling 
the first dance. 

Refreshments will be served during the 
evening. The admission charge is 50 
cents per person. Both couples and stags 
are invited to enjoy themselves country 

warded. The men, however, hope that 
future projects will be even more suc- 
cessful. To help plan such bigger and 
better events, profits from the "Moon 
Hop" will go into their treasury. 

Don't forget to support all Vet-spon- 
the International Geophysical Year, was I sored activities, especially the popular 
begun in July. Thanks to all those who Saturday night dances which will go into 
helped to make the dance a success, their | action with the beginning of the basket- 
months of hard work did not go unre- j ball season.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following articles on three important organizations have 
been contributed by Charles Lightner.) 


The 1957-1958 drive for the Campus Chest will officially get under way next 
week with the Campus Chest Chapel Service. 

This annual drive for funds is a culmination of all civic campaigns under one 
heading, the Campus Chest. Funds derived from this drive will be allocated to the 
Heart Fund, Cancer Fund, the Salvation Army, Red Cross, the World University 
Service, the Japan International Christian University, and the Overseas Student Un- 
dergraduate Program. The first four funds above are well-known to us here in 
America. The other three are concerned with foreign colleges and foreign students. 
They will be explained more specifically in chapel. 

It is our civic duty as college students to enlist aid in these worthwhile institu- 
tions. By getting behind the Campus Chest Drive, we will prove ourselves mature 
clear-headed adults who are ready to accept some small part of humanity's respon- 
sibility— to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves. 


It is the purpose of this organization to foster understanding and cooperation 
between the students and the faculty of Lebanon Valley College and to advance the 
welfare of the student body through the coordination of student activities. In other 
words, Student-Faculty is the organization in which the students' complaints and 
opinions should be aired in order to facilitate student life on campus. 

The method for getting these views on the agenda of the Student-Faculty is 
quite simple. Write down your complaint and give it to the Student-Faculty repre- 
sentative of your class or of the organization to which you belong. Or you may put 
your complaint in the Suggestion Box that S-F is going to put on campus in the near 

It is the pledge of the Student-Faculty Council of 1957-58 to meet the needs of 
the students of Lebanon Valley College in so far as the rules and regulations of the 
college will allow us. 


Church Vocations Week, October 15. 
17, will bring to our campus three guests 
who will share in numerous activities 
during their stay. These are: Dr. Roy 
Miller, United Theological Seminary, 
Dayton, Ohio; the Rev. Warren J. Hart- 
man, denominational Director of Youth 
in the EUB Church, Dayton, Ohio; and 
the Rev. Edwin Fisher, Assistant Secre- 
tary of the Department of World Mis- 
sions, Dayton, Ohio. 

Our students will want to meet and 
greet our new college pastor and family, 
the Reverend and Mrs. Mark J. Hostet- 
ter, who have come to our community 
to succeed Dr. and Mrs. W. A. Wilt. A 
good place to have this fellowship is in 
the program of services offered by the 
College Church to which all are heartily 
invited at all times. 

Morning prayers are held five morn- 
ings a week from 7:45 to 7:55 a.m. in the 
Audio- Visual Room of Gossard Memor- 
ial Library. Attendance reached the 50 
mark during the first week. All stu- 
dents and faculty are welcome. 

The following students were granted 
Probationer's licenses to preach the 
Christian Gospel at Palmyra: Wayde At- 
well, Annville; James Graby, Annville; 
Paul Rock, III, Harrisburg; and Sandy 
Stover, Hershey. 

Mary Swope and John Fitch will share 
in the music for the first Sunday Evening 
Vesper Service, 5 to 5:30 p.m. on 
WLBR-TV, October 6. 



Yes, we have raised over $2500. To be exact, we have raised $2608.81 
the students ask, "why isn't it being built?" 

The purpose of this article is to answer that question. 

First of all, we of the College Lounge Fund Committee are very elated over the 
fine spirit that the student body displayed in making last year's campaign successful. 
This amount, however, will not begin to pay for the complete renovation of the old 
library into the College Lounge. Such a task would cost the college around 

In order to cut down on this cost the college will use its own men to renovate 
the building. 

The active functions of the Lounge will be situated in the basement of the old 
library. The supplies for these functions have been, in the most part, ordered by the 

In essence, then, the problems facing the completion of the Lounge are man- 
power and sufficient funds. These facts should not deter us from continuing our 
support of the College Lounge projects that are slated for this year. The more 
money we have on hand, the faster the Lounge will be completed. It is only 
through continued interest that our goal— a complete College Lounge— will be 
reached. The Lounge committee will continue this year to plan top-flight entertain- 
ment projects for the students. 

Knowing your interest in the Lounge is genuine, we of the committee are 
asking you for your support this year. 


Freshman Class 
Elects Officers 

The freshman class at its first meeting 
on Oct. 2 chose its officers for the com- 
ing year. Elected to the office of presi- 
dent was LeRoy Badgley, from Chat- 
ham, New Jersey. At Chatham High 
School LeRoy was a member of both 
the soccer and basketball teams. Robert 
Miller, vice president, is from Meadville, 
Pennsylvania. In high school Bob partici- 
pated in many musical organizations, 
such as band, male quartet, and chorus. 

A Harrisburg girl, Mary Ann Maguire, 
was elected to be class treasurer. She 
was active in the National Honor Soci- 
ety, yearbook staff, and the orchestra. 
Nancy Ovates, from Lebanon, was cho- 
sen to be secretary. Active in sports, 
student government, and music at Corn- 
wall High School, she is preparing to be 
a medical technician. 


(Cont. from p. 1, col. 1) 
Some new rules are now in force. One 
is that smoking is now allowed in the 
restrooms of the building. Also, books 
on class reserve will be handed out 
from the main desk upon request. 

To former students as well as new 
ones the new library will prove to be a 
very useful aid to research and study. 
It should be clear in the minds of all, 
however, that the new facilities entail 
responsibilities as well as privileges. With 
proper care the library will serve stu- 
dents of Lebanon Valley for many years 
to come. 

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, October 4, 1957 



Introducing — 

The observing student should be well 
aware that besides the newer personalities 
of the lowly but impressive Frosh, there 
are, sprinkled among the present year's 
faculty, some faces unfamiliar to those 
of us who have been here in previous 
years. For that reason La Vie has pre- 
pared a number of short profiles for the 
purpose of presenting to the student body 
the newest members of our faculty. 
Dean Martha E. Faust 

In a school where the pass word to 
guidance in school government, social 
life, and academic life is "counseling" 
or "counselor," students can well appre- 
ciate the labor of one who might be call- 
ed one of the two "head counselors" of 
the school. It is with this in mind that 
La Vie welcomes our new Dean of Wo- 
men, Miss Martha E. Faust. 

Miss Faust is an alumna of Lebanon 


Arkansas and Louisiana. 

One of her duties in the conser- 
vatory is the supervision of stu- 
dent teaching in the elementary grades 
in Hershey. Another duty which 
Miss Burton assumes in addition to 
the courses she teaches is the advisor- 

Valley and has spent her post-graduate i ship of the local student chapter of the 

days in study and in teaching. After 
teaching in the school systems of Hum- 
melstown and Hershey, Pennsylvania, 
she went to Syracuse University in 1948 
where she studied with a graduate fel- 
lowship in the field of student personnel. 
At Syracuse Miss Faust was an assistant 
in the office of the Dean of Women and 
had complete management of one of the 
dormitories. In 1951 she became Dean of 
Women at Indiana State Teachers' Col- 
lege, Indiana, Pennsylvania, where she 
served in that position until coming back 
to her alma mater. 
In addition to fulfilling all of her du- 

Music Educator's National Conference. 
La Vie sincerely hopes Miss Burton has 
found a pleasant home in Pennsylvania, 

Mr. Carroll M. Colgan 

It is difficult to say whether Dr. Col- 
gan is a southerner, because he main- 
tains that Florida, his home state, is not 
southern in the true southern spirit. 

Dr. Colgan served with the Air Force 
during World War II and attended Jack- 
> sonville Junior College and the Univer- 
sity of Florida, where he received his 
B.S. in 1949. He later spent a number of 
years in study at the University of Flor- 

From Green Blotter 

For the past several years there has 
been at work in the Lebanon Valley un- 
derground a highly secret and little- 
known organization called the Green 
Blotter Club. 

Whether this organization was a cell 
from the you-know-what party or an 
idealistic community of modern tran- 
scendentalists is immaterial and irrele- 
vant. The fact remains that this organi- 
zation is now valiantly attempting to 
raise itself above the quagmire of laissez- 
faire-ism and establish an aggressive pol- 
icy of something or other. 

This brash revolution leaves many op- 
portunities for aspiring young poets, 
playwrights, or scribblers to exchange 
ideas and manuscripts at meetings held 
throughout the year at various times. 

If anyone is still interested, you can 
take the first steps to become members 
by submitting to Dr. Struble, the adviser, 
or placing in the Green Blotter Club 
mailbox located in the Student Person- 
nel Office a few samples of your work. 
If, in the opinion of the club members, 
your work is not completely worthless, 
you will be accepted into membership. 
As you can easily see, there is every- 
thing to gain and nothing to lose. 

In addition to meetings, a column 
will be filled in each issue with ex- 
cerpts or complete works of the mem- 
bers; and, if enough interest is shown, a 
magazine will be published containing a 
fair representation of each member's ef- 

Again we urge you to give yourself a 
chance. Don't pass judgment on your 
literary ability; we'll do that.

Approaching the 


(With reference to Pogo, Isaac Asimov, 
and Thelonius Monk) 

Over the summer there were inculcated 
in my mind some aspects of various cul- 
tural movements. What is deficient in 
the characteristics of these movements in 
literature and music that might prevent 
their being designated "avant-garde" is 
due, no doubt, to their lack at the pres- 
ent time of philosophical or intellectual 
intensity. But of the fact that science fic- 
tion, progressive jazz, and the cartoon- 
type of Pog and Peanuts are making def- 
inite, although modest, inroads into the 
culture of our generation there is not a 
doubt in my mind. 

Thus, these specifics became known 
to me over the summer; but I do not 
wish to preach them. I have no desire 
to win converts to Charlie Brown, Lester 
del Rey, or Dave Brubeck. I have cited 
them only as examples. I desire only an 
awareness on our part of the new aspects 
of our own culture — of the avant-garde. 

At the beginning of a new school year 
I want for myself and other college stu- 
dents the expectation not of a cyclic 
development where the cycle is last year's

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, October 4, 1957 

Flying Dutchmen Wallop Coloniel 21-1 

Lebanon Valley traveled to Wilkes last 
Saturday and downed the Colonels by a . 
21-0 count before a crowd which had 
gathered for the Kingston Forty-Fourt 
Kiwanis Charity Game for underprivi- 
leged children. It was Valley the whole 
way as Wilkes threatened but never man- 
aged to muster the punch needed to drive 
into pay dirt. 

After receiving the opening kick LV 
marched 67 yards in four first downs 
on twelve plays. Dick Smith capped the 
drive with a five yard dive. Two key 
plays in the drive were a ten yard run by 
quarterback Bill DeLiberty and a 14 yard 
run by Ed Slezosky. DeLiberty added the 
first of three PAT's. 

Midway through the second period 
Wilkes penetrated to Valley's 27 before 
being stopped by the Valley line. The 
Dutchmen then drove to the Colonels' 
seven, and after an exchange of fumbles 
DeLiberty threw a two yard flat pass to 
Bob Longenecker for the TD. 

In the third period after a recovered 
fumble on the visitor's 38 LV put to- 
gether a drive that was ended by a two 
yard plunge by freshman Les Holstein. 
For the third and final time the PAT 
was added by DeLiberty. 

The reserves of Lebanon Valley played 
the final period. Although the remaining 
portion of the game was played on Val- 
ley territory, Wilkes could not push the 
pigskin over the double stripe. 


Coach Ellis McCracken recently an- 
nounced that there would be an impor- 
tant meeting of all candidates for wres- 
tling on Monday, October 7, at 6:30 p.m. 
in the Lynch Memorial Gymnasium. 

At the time of the announcement 
Coach McCracken emphasized that ex- 
perience is not necessary. It is a com- 
mon belief that wrestling is not for boys 
of small stature. Mr. McCracken states 
that this is not true because intercolle- 
giate wrestling is based on weight class- 
es. He also stated that small boys are 
row needed. Since wrestling is in the 
building phase at LV, Freshman especial- 
ly are urged to try out. 

Valley Meets Upsala 

With the Flying Dutchmen getting a 
break in schedule this weekend, campus 
enthusiasm is directed toward the Val- 
ley's home opener with Upsala College 
of East Orange, New Jersey, on Satur- 
day, October 12. 

Resuming a rivalry after five years, 
LVC will defend a 4-0 record over the 
Vikings in a long-awaited encounter. 

Although the Upsala team has lost its 
entire starting backfield, it has eleven let- 
termen and several promising freshmen 
around which to build. 

Head Coach John Hooper brings a 
fast, heavy squad into Pennsylvania to 
give the Dutchmen their first home test. 

LVC Gridders Rest 

Over Open Date 

An improved Lebanon Valley College 
football eleven will take a rest after its 
first contest with Wilkes College before 
meeting Upsala in the Blue and White's 
first home game of the season. 

With nineteen lettermen back from 
last year, the outlook appears bright for 
head coach Ellis R. McCracken. 

Co-captains Joe Toy and Dick Smith 
will spearhead the Dutchmen attack help- 
ed out by returning starters Ron Weinel, 
Tom Kunkle, and Ed Slezosky. 

The quarterback position will be han- 
dled by lettermen Bill DeLiberty, Tom 
Reinhart, and Frank Giovinazzo with 
lettermen Irv LeGay, John Ollinger, Ed 
Slezosky, and Dick Smith battling fresh- 
men Les Holstein, Vera Magnuson, and 
Charles Lowers for the other backfield 

Four experienced men will man the 
terminals for the Valley. They are John 
Lambert, Nello Lavorini, Bob Longe- 
necker, and Clair Paul. 

At tackle will be lettermen Cyril Kar- 
dos, Tom Kunkle and freshman Fred 

A host of guards including veterans 
Toy, Weinel, Ken Longenecker, Karl 
Wesolowski and freshmen Dave Miller 
and Shea Heffelfinger make the guard 
spot one of the Valley's strongest. 

At center will be lettermen Neil Ahar- 
rah, Bruce Rismiller, and Hal Donley. 

Although small in number, the Dutch- 
men have been playing aggressive ball in 
practice and should better their record of 
last year, which was one win and seven 
losses. The Valley's only win came in 
their opening game with Wilkes. 

Girls' Hockey Team 
Starts New Season 

"All right, girls, take your laps and 
then line up!" This is for twenty-six 
women students the sign that hockey 
practice has begun in earnest. 

Miss Betty Jane Bowman, director of 
women's athletics and coach of the hock- 
ey team, believes firmly that the LVC 
Dutchgirls have better than a fighting 
chance for a good reason. Her reasons: 
the number of girls out for the team, 
the spirit of the players, and the abund- 
ance of fine freshmen players who, Miss 
Bowman hopes, will provide firm sup- 
port for the more experienced upper- 

Ten varsity and junior varsity women 
have returned to the 1957 squad, joined 
by three new upperclassmen recruits and 
thirteen freshmen candidates. 

The 1957 schedule opens on October 5 
when LV meets the Blue Ridge Hockey 
Club on the Valley field. Game time is 
10 a.m. Subsequent games will be played 
against Millersville on October 8 (home), 
Shippensburg on October 1 (home), Eli- 
zabethtown on October 1 (away), Mil- 
lersville on October 23 (away), and Al- 
bright on October 25 (home). 

Cheerleaders Chosen 

Those new members of the Valley 
cheeri squad are Dee Arthur and John 
Dick, members of the Freshman Class. 
Be sure to help them cheer on the team 
j at all the home games and at the next 
pep rally, October 18. 

indications this year's football team has 
the potential to become a winning team. 
This year could be different from those 
in the past. Maybe we can't don a uni- 
form and go out and help play the game, 
but we can back the team with our sup- 
port and cheers.

and that of the year before, but rather 
an expectotion of a spiraling develop- 
ment wherein the scope and range of 
outlook is, as is natural to the path of 
the spiral, expanded and more sweeping 
than that of any previous year. (SRS.)

Ohio Speakers Keynote 
Church Vocations Week 

Church Vocations Week at Lebanon 
Valley College was observed on October 
15, 16, and 17. The guest speakers par- 
ticipating in the observance were Dr. Roy 
Miller, professor in the United Theologi- 
cal Seminary, Dayton, Ohio; the Rev. 
Warren J. Hartman, denominational Di- 
rector of Youth in the Evangelical Unit- 
ed Brethren Church, Dayton, Ohio; and 
the Rev. Edwin Fisher, assistant secre- 
tary of the Board of World Missions, 
Dayton, Ohio. 

The pre-theological students on the 
campus met on October 15 with Dr. 
Miller, professor of sociology of religion 
and director of field work at the United 
Theological Seminary, Dayton, Ohio. 
The Tuesday chapel was for the majority 
of students the official opening of the 
week. Mr. Hartman, guest speaker, told 
students that the Christian vocation is 
our being called to be sons of God. It is 
then within this framework that we dis- 
cover our occupation, he added. 

Highlighting the week were a Faculty 
Tea in Green Hall Lounge; a group dis- 
cussion on "Now Christ Can See Me," in 
the College Church; and the SCA Fel- 
lowship meeting at Mt. Gretna at which 
Mr. Fisher gave the message. 

The team of vocational counselors 
from Dayton, Ohio, were joined on Octo- 
ber 16 by members of the boards of 
ministerial training of the Pennsylvania

Menotti Opera 
To Be Presented 
By Wig and Buckle 

Wig and Buckle, LVC's dramatic soci- 
ety, has made tentative plans to present 
a short opera during the first semester. 
The Telephone by Gian-Carlo Menotti 
has been chosen by the group. 

A modern one-act comedy, the opera 
has only two roles which will be sung by 
Charlotte Pierson and Joseph Frazier. 
Karl Moyer will play the piano accom- 
paniment. Mr. James L. Kline is direct- 
ing the production. 

Club Olympia Dance 
Tops Tug-Day Events 

After competing against each other 
over the Quittie to find the answer to the 
vital question: "Will the freshmen con- 
tinue to wear their beloved dinks?", the 
Sophomore and Freshman Classes will 
work together in sponsoring a dance in 
honor of the athletes of the day. The 
dance will be called "Club Olympia." 
Highlight of the evening will be the dis 
play of Freshman talent. 

Tickets are seventy-five cents each and 
may be obtained from any underclass- 
man. The date of the dance is October 
26, and it will begin promptly at 8:30 
p.m. in the gymnasium. 

Both sophomores and freshmen hope 
to see a large number of their college 
friends there to help the winners of the 
day enjoy their victory and console the 
losers in their defeat. 

Lebanon Valley's sixth annual Parents' 
Day will be held this Saturday, October 
26, in combination with the Underclass- 
men's Day events. An invitation has been 
extended by President Miller to the par- 
ents of all students. The day has been 
especially planned to give students and 
their families an opportunity to become 
better acquainted with the college, its 
faculty, and its functions. 

Registration for parents will begin at 
9 a.m. A question and answer forum 
will highlight the morning. This is to be 
held in Engle Hall at 10:30. With Dr. 
Miller presiding, the department heads of 
the college will answer questions and 
discuss problems with the parents. 

Following the luncheon to be prepared 
by the Women's Auxiliary, parents will 
be invited to attend the football game 
with Moravian College at the Lebanon 
High School Stadium at 2:00 p.m. Be- 
twen 4 and 5 p.m. all residence halls 
will be open for inspection. Immediately 
afterward, there will be an open house in 
the gymnasium with President Miller and 
the faculty. 


The rivalry between the Freshman and 
Sophomore classes will be culminated this 
year in the two-day program of athletic 
events to be held October 25 and 26. 
Points will be awarded to the winner in 
each event. A minimum of 51 points is 
needed to determine whether the Fresh- 
men will retain their dinks or throw them 
into the Quittie. 

Four of the scheduled events, worth 
six points a piece, will be held on Friday, 
October 25. These will be: girls' tug-of- 
war; girls' basketball throw; boys' basket- 
ball foul shooting; and boys' touch foot- 
ball game. 

Saturday's contests will open at 8 a.m. 
with the girls' softball throw. This will 
be followed by the boys' softball throw, 
girls' fifty-yard dash, boys' hundred-yard 
dash, and boys' wheelbarrow race. Each 
of these is worth six points. 

The main event of the day will be the 
traditional tug-of-war on the banks of the 
Quittie. The tug will be worth forty 
points to the winning team. In the event 
of rain, the tug will be held on October 
27, and it alone will determine the win- 

All of the events have been planned 
by a student committee consisting of

Faculty Members Reported Improving 

Inquiries have been heard around the campus concerning two LVC professors 
who were taken ill last term. Perhaps La Vie can do something to answer these 

History majors in particular will be interested to learn that Mrs. Maud Laugh- 
lin, chairman of the History Department, is convalescing at the Barrow Nursing 
Home in Palmyra. Prof. Alex Fehr reports that she reads faithfully the New York 

Mrs. Laughlin enjoys the cards and letters which students and friends send her. 
La Vie being an exponent of "news-spreading," urges Valleyites to continue this 
cheering habit of correspondence. Little personal notes, tidbits of news, and college 
gossip are appreciated by those who cannot glean them firsthand. 
Mrs. Laughlin's address is: 

Mrs. Maud Laughlin 
Barrow Nursing Home 
1212 W. Main St. 
Palmyra, Penna. 

Arrangements may be made to visit Mrs. Laughlin through Prof. Ralph Shay 
in the history department. 

Dr. Mary Gillespie is showing gratifying improvement from major surgery 
performed last March. Miss Gillespie was chairman of the Music department from 
1930 to 1957, an admirable record of service in the field of music education. In ad- 
dition she taught courses in elementary educational methods, eurhythmies, and sight- 

Those who would like to correspond with or send cards to Miss Gillespie may 
write to her at the following address:

In writing to her girls in West Hall, Miss Gillespie expressed appreciation for 
the birthday cards and notes the girls sent her. These notes let our professors know 
that we appreciate the knowledge and invaluable help which they have imparted to 
us. Let's keep those mailmen busy! 

Your Student-Faculty Reports 

The last meeting of the Student-Faculty Council discussed three important 
topics among other subjects. 

One of these discussions was concerned with the inefficiency of the Men's Day 
Student Congress in the past few years. Dave Meder, secretary and S-F representa- 
tive of the present Congress, was asked to prepare a report on what this year's Con- 
gress was going to do in order to make itself more worthy of the powers that it con- 
tains in its constitution. Mr. Meder informed the Council of the Congress' schedul- 
ing of regular meetings and holding of regular court sessions in order to deal with 
men day students who have transgressed the rules. After this report S-F withheld 
any further action. 

The Library Committee gave their report on the proposed extension of library 
hours. Bob Kauffman, chairman, said that there was a degree of opposition to such 
a move because it is thought that students would not exploit this opportunity once it 
would begin. The committee is extending its actions in order to ascertain how the 
whole student body and the administration feel toward the matter. 

One requisition was passed during the concourse of the meeting. It concerned 
the request for more tables and chairs by the man day students in order toi accom- 
modate the larger attendance of day students in the men's day room. This requisi- 
tion will be passed on for faculty approval. 

Remember, if you have any complaints or suggestions, please give them to your 
S-F representative. He will see that they get attention. Or, place it in the Suggestion 
Box that will soon be installed in the Student Personnel Office. CWL 

William Blake 

And We Moderns 

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright 
In the forests of the Night. 

I suppose one would expect William 
Blake to conceive of and to see such a 
scene with such a tyger. After all, he 
saw angels too, so I'm told, and what's a 
thousand burning tygers compared to one 
little cherub, not to mention one of the 
larger varieties such as a bi- or tri-wing- 
ed seraphim. 

But the tyger-vision is sufficiently rep- 
resentative of Blake to convince me of 
his being of an entirely different age 
than the one we moderns have formed 
for ourselves. Chronologically, of course, 
this fact is obvious. But there are other 
factors, not less obvious to me, that are 
involved here. 

For instance, there is no doubt in my 
mind that Blake is too piercing. He's too 
shrill for our age. Men in gray flannel 
suits just don't think about tygers burn- 
ing in the forests of the night. Can you 
imagine that a boy with a buckle on his 
pants and a buttoned-down collar with a 
button in the back could ever be concern- 
ed or have his mind occupied with such 
over-emotional or exotically romantic 
imagery as that found in Blake's poetry? 

Absolutely not. We live in a world of 
hard, cold facts — but don't wince. In 
fact, the best thing to do is forget about 
the hard, cold facts. Let everyone know 
you're a realist, but then proceed to for- 
get why you're a realist. Go about life 
with a mind-load of trivialities. It's the 
only way to be secure; it's the only way 
to keep from getting "shook." 

We moderns have visions too. Our 
tygers are different from Blake's: 

Green, lolling and rolling in grassy foam, 
Algae and lichens dangle from their 
whiskers. Their moss-covered coats are 
dull-caked. They're easily ours — our 
love, our life, our souls. 

Quittie Execs Plan 

Bigger, Better Book 

Extensive plans are now being made 
by the staff of the Quittapahilla for 1959 
to make this year's book one of the big- 
gest and best ever put out. Under the 
able leadership of editor Mary Beaver, 
associate editor Art Ford, and business 
manager Jim Greenwood, the staff mem- 
bers are hard at work putting together a 
good book. 

Editors of the various sections of the 
book are: Carolyn Schairer, activities; 
Louise Gay, department of music; Mar- 
ion Brooks, women's sports; Frank Gio- 
vinazzo, men's sports; Linda Heefner, 
faculty and underclassmen; Vonnie Ev- 
ans, juniors and seniors; and Marie

include: Ned Heindel, photography edi- 
tor; Ann Rohland, copy editor; and Ruth

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, October 25, 1957 


Introducing - - - 

In the last issue of La Vie we intro- 
duced you to three new professors. This 
week we would like to introduce the four 
remaining professors new to our campus. 

Mary Virginia Bowman 

To Mrs. Bowman is due not so much a 
"welcome to" as a "welcome back." 
Three years ago, having taught English at 
LVC for approximately a year and a 
half, she returned to the University of 
Virginia, where she had previously re- 
ceived her M.A. degree, in order to con- 
tinue graduate work toward her Ph.D. 
under a Virginia Mason Davidge Fel- 
lowship. Mrs. Bowman is presently writ- 
ing her dissertation in the field of con- 
temporary literature. 

Originally from Harrisburg she gradu- 
ated from Mt. Holyoke College in Had- 
ley, Massachusetts. She then worked with 
the Life Insurance Sales Bureau in Hart- 
ford, Connecticut before beginning her 
graduate study at the University of Vir- 

In addition to teaching freshman Eng- 
lish, the humanities, and the poetry of 
the romantic period, she has assumed the 
position of Freshman class adviser. She 
is presently living in Annville and has 
expressed her happiness in returning to 
our campus as well as her pleasant sur- 
prise at the way LVC has grown during 
ber absence. 

Jacob L. Rhodes 

Arriving on the Lebanon Valley cam- 
pus fresh from graduate work in nuclear 
Physics, Mr. Jacob L. Rhodes has 
been appointed head of the college phy- 
sics department. Realizing the impor- 
tance of nuclear energy in today's world, 
v »e welcome a scientist and teacher 
whose study has led him to this field 
°f investigation. 

Mr. Rhodes is also an alumnus of Leb- 
anon Valley from which he graduated in 
(Cont. p. 5, col. 2) 

Miss Joan Reeve 

The department of music along with 
the college is happy to welcome a new 
piano teacher, Miss Joan Reeve of Phila- 
delphia. Miss Reeve commutes from her 
home in Philadelphia on Thursday and 
Friday of each week in order to teach 
piano at the conservatory. 

She is a graduate of Beaver College 
where she majored in piano and received 
her Mus.B. degree. In addition to piano 
she has also studied violin, singing, and 

Miss Reeve has taught at Clark's Con- 
servatory of Music and the Suburban 
Center of Arts, both in Philadelphia. Her 
chief desire is to be a concert pianist, 
and she is presently doing graduate work 
at the University of Pennsylvania toward 
an M.A. degree in Music Composition. 

When asked about her hobbies, Miss 
Reeve replied that she enjoys giving 
many recitals on the piano and raising 
kittens on the side. 

Mr. Robert J. Wagner 

Mr. Wagner is also a Lebanon Valley 
alumnus, a rather recent one at that, 
having been graduated from Valley in 

From Valley he went to Rutgers as a 
teaching assistant. After two years of 
study there he received his M.S. degree. 
During the year 1956-1957 he taught at 
Upsala College in New Jersey. While 
teaching at Valley he is doing graduate 
work toward his Ph.D. at NYC where 
he is studying applied mathematics. In 
addition to teaching regular college 
courses in mathematics analysis, business 
mathematics, analytical geometry, calcu- 
lus, and modern algebra, Mr. Wagner is 
teaching a night school class in differ- 
ential equations. 

In spite of all his duties as a teacher 
and a graduate student he still finds time 
to enjoy his favorite hobby — playing the 

From Green Blotter 

The following are works submitted by 
students recently accepted into the Green 
Blotter Club. 


Now begin the first clear days of fall — 
The gentle almost wind, 
Hint of approaching winter, 
Rasp and scurry of almost faded leaves. 
Not just yet the fire-gold October 
Only waning green of sometime summer 
Now the grey squirrel scold, the wood 

Quiet where birds called. 

A time before the frosted sheen 

On morning's lawn 

The hunter's sight of a grey-white flag 
A moment now for sorting dreams 
Before the warm and sunlit memories 

Forgotten in the white-world season. 

— Joe Frazier 


Night descends on soft, hushed wings, 
Tenderly round my shoulders She flings 
The dark cape of peace, the shroud of 


And I, alone, am befriended by Night. 
The rest of the world in madness 
Screams, and runs, and sleeps so the 

night may end, 
But night comes to me as comfort and 


A sad comfort — for visions which sparkle 
by night, 

Fade like white mist when touched by 
the light. 

When Dawn frees the sky, and black 

turns to blue, 
I must rise and fight that my dreams can 

come true. 

— Gary DeHart 
Music send the souls of me 
Some place where neither time nor space 

will rule, 
Some place where the Infinite 
Will let our souls seek their true place 
In a method which, when earthbound, 
We can't seem to see 
For earth's enclosed imagination. 
But way out there our souls are free 
To roam among the trees and meadows 
Of the waning fields of thought 
think, while listening, and believe. 

— Jack Markert 
Who is it that says 
The city reeks of gloom? 
Have they never seen 
On a side street quiet 
The sunset sun on brick? 
Have they never seen 
In but that one sight 
All the reflected light 
Of all lovely things? 
Who is it that says 
A winter's lawn's so ugly? 
Have they never seen 
On a yard by an alley 
The sunset sun on dead grass? 
Have they never seen 
In but that one sight 
All the reflected light 
Of all living things?— Sandy Stover

have been prepared by students of hu- 
manities, sociology, and science. 

A French graphologist, portrayed by 
Miss Ruth Butler, gave character readings 
of the new personnel based on their hand- 

The social committee in charge of ar- 
rangments for the banquet was composed

Outstanding Quartet Personalties 

To Appear in All College Series 

Hailed as "America's greatest contribution to quartet history," the Juilliard 
String Quartet, sponsored by the Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge Foundation, Washing- 
ton, D.C., is scheduled to perform on Monday, October 28, at 8:30 p.m. in Engle 
Hall. Since its inception in 1946 the Quartet has played hundreds of concerts and 
has had many triumphs in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Their numerous 
recordings for Columbia Records are also outstanding works. 

Quartet-in-residence at the Juilliard School of Music, New York City, the 
ensemble's members, all of whom have distinguished themselves as solo performers, 
are Robert Mann and Robert Koff, violinists; Raphael Hillyer, violist; and Claus 
Adam, cellist. 

The Juilliard's first violinist, Robert Mann, was born in Portland, Oregon. 
There he studied with the concertmaster of the Portland Symphony and played with 
the Portland Junior Orchestra prior to 1938 when he left for New York City to 
study at the Juilliard School. He began composing during his fourteenth year and 
has continued to devote much time to this medium. 

After winning the Naumburg award, Mann gave a successful debut in 1941. He 
then undertook a number of concert tours as soloist and as first violinist of the 
Albuquerque Festival String Quartet. After three years in the Army he helped to 
form the Quartet. Married and the father of a daughter, Mann loves to live in the 
mountains and goes to the Rockies whenever he can. 

Robert Koff, the ensemble's second violinist, is a native of Los Angeles. He 
attended Oberlin Conservatory and upon graduation was awarded a scholarship at 
the Juilliard Graduate School. He performed in many chamber music concerts 
throughout the country prior to his three years of service in the Army. Following 
this he participated in establishing the Juilliard String Quartet and joined the faculty 
of the Juilliard School of Music. 

Besides being interested in music he is an avid camper and hiker, spending 
many weeks each year camping in America's most rugged mountain and forest 
wilderness areas. 

The violist, Raphael Hillyer, was born in Ithaca, New York. He studied pri- 
vately with Serge Korgueff and at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia. He has played 
in the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Koussevitzky and in the NBC Orchestra 
under Toscanini. 

Hillyer earned Phi Beta Kappa specializing in mathematics at Dartmouth 
College, received an M.A. degree from Harvard University, and completed his pre- 
medical studies at Harvard, Tufts and MIT while pursuing his professional musical 
life with its rigorous year-round concert and rehearsal schedule. His principle hob- 
bies are his three children, contemporary art, children's art, and reading in many 

Claus Adam, cellist, was born in Sumatra, Indonesia. After his family moved to 
America, he studied privately in cello and composition and was awarded a Philhar- 
monic scholarship with Joseph Emonts. He was solo cellist in several orchestras, 
including the National Orchestral Association and the Minneapolis Symphony. He 
has toured extensively as a solo cellist. 

A creative musician as well as a performing one, Mr. Adam studied compo- 
sition with Stefan Wolpe. In 1952 his Piano Sonata was chosen as the only work to 
represent the United States at the I.S.C.M.'s 30th anniversary at Salzburg. He is 
deeply interested in all the arts and is an ardent photographer and collector of 
oriental art. He is married to a painter and they have one child.

LVC Receives Grant 

Lebanon Valley College has received 
a check for $2,000 from the Esso Educa- 
tion Foundation which awarded 345 fi- 
nancial grants to other educational insti- 
tutions for this academic year. 

Established in 1955 by Standard Oil 
Company and a group of domestic affili- 
ates, the Foundation has made grants of 
over $3,600,000 in its brief history. 

The 1957-58 fianancial aid program 
is in addition to an earlier announced 
grant of $1,500,000, made by Standard 
Oil Company to the Esso Education 
Foundation for a special program to ad- 
vance tht teaching of science and engi- 
neering. The science education grant 
was given as part of Jersey Standard's 
program marking its 75th anniversary 
this year. 

Enrollment in 139 of these schools is 
less than 1,000 students and included in 
the group are 201 coeducational institu- 
tions, 49 men's colleges, and 34 women's 

(Cont. from p. 1, col. 1) 
and East Pennsylvania Conferences. 
These men, Rev. Harry L. Fehl, Sr., 
Windsor, Pennsylvania, and Rev. Warren 
Mentzer, Campbelltown, Pennsylvania, 
met with the ministerial candidates from 
their areas. In addition student interviews 
were scheduled with the guest leaders as 
well as with Rev. Fehl and Rev. Ment- 

The week concluded on Thursday eve- 
ning, October 17, with the Delta Tau 
Chi service of Consecration and Com- 
munion. Dr. Roy Miller delivered the 
sermon at this service. Rev. Mark J. 
Hostetter, pastor of the College Church 
and host during Church Vocations Week, 
was the celebrant for the Communion. 


The Alpha Zeta chapter of Beta Beta 
Beta, popularly known as Tri-Beta, held 
its first meeting of the 1957-58 year on 
October 8. With Thomas Carmany, Mary 
S. Morris, Margaret Ambler, and Dr. 
Francis Wilson taking over the offices of 
president, vice president, secretary, and 
treasurer, respectively, the club made 
plans for what it hopes will be an inter- 
esting and worthwhile year. 

The members have again planned to 
include the service of typing blood in 
their program. 

Following the business meeting, re- 
freshments were served, and the mem- 
bers of the club were addressed by their 
adviser, Dr. Wilson. To the freshmen and 
other newcomers to LVC, it should be 
explained that Tri-Beta is the National 
Biological Honor Society and is open to 
only those students who show an interest 
in biology and who achieve an average 
of B or above in 40% of their subjects. 

Pi Gamma Mu, a national social sci- 
ence honor society, is organizing for the 
1957-58 collegiate year under Ronald 
Weinel, president. The society is present- 
ing a program of current events on 
October 28. Guests from Albright Col- 
lege and possibly from Franklin and 
Marshall College will be present as well 
as society members. 

The local chapter, Pennsylvania Mu, 
has received national recognition for its 
past achievements. Membership is open 
to those who have earned an average of 
eighty-five or better in sociology, political 
science, or economics. 

The Psychology Club met last Thurs- 
day, October 17, to hold elections for 
new officers. Those elected to the vari- 
ous posts were: Marge Ambler, presi- 
dent; Everett Gilmore, vice-president; 
and Ann Rohland, secretary-treasurer. 

The club is open to all students who 
are actively interested in the study of 
psychology. During the year the organi- 
zation hopes to present many intersting

ate study at the University of Pennsylva- 
nia in nuclear physics, he served in the 
radiation laboratory of Johns Hopkins 
University. Later he was appointed head 
of the physics department at Roanoke 
College in Salem, Virginia, where he

Rush Week Activities 
Underway In Societies 

The month is October, the freshmen 
are eligible, and the societies are rushing. 
Each organization will present various 
activities introducing freshmen and new 
students to their respective members and 
policies with the objective of securing 
pledges in the near future. 

Kappa Lambda Nu, women's society 
known as Clio, will hold official rushing 
during the week of Octhober 28 to No- 
vember 8. An Open House in the Clio 
room at Mary Capp Green Hall on Octo- 
ber 29 will commence the activities. Spe- 
cial attention will be paid to prospective 
members during the week, concluding 
with a Tea and Fashion Show to be held 
at the home of Mrs. Ruth Bender on 
November 8. 

Competing with the Clionians will be 
Delphian, or Delta Lambda Sigma, the 
other women's society. The Delphian 
Tea will be given on Friday, November 1, 
in Mary Green Hall. On Tuesday, No- 
cember 5, rushees will be accompanied 
by their Delphian Big Sisters to the 
Open House to be held in the Delphian 
Room at Mary Green Hall. All girls are 
urged to participate in the Clio-Delphian 
Hike on October 22 planned jointly by 
the two organizations. 

Phi Lambda Sigma, Clio's brother so- 
ciety known as Clio, entertained pro- 
spective pledges with a Smoker featuring 
a local student combo held on October 
15 in Room B-l. On Monday, October 
21, the men were given another opportu- 
nity to meet the Philonians at a second 
Smoker in Day Student Room. Other 
Philo rushing enterprises will be an- 
nounced to the freshmen. 

Rushing activities for Kappa Lambda 
Sigma, known as Kalo and brother soci- 
ety to the Delphians, began on October 
10 with a Smoker for prospective pledg- 
es. Another Smoker was held on October 
17. Famous Kalo "Trip Weekends" will 
be on November 1, 2, and 16 when Kalo 
men will take rushees on trips to various 
points of interest in the near-by vicinity. 
Traditional "Harry's Night," a treat for 
prospective pledges, will be observed on 
November 5. 

Bonfire Highlights 

Frosh Pep Rally 

Thanks to the efforts of the energetic 
freshmen boys on the night of October 
11, students of LV took part in one of the 
biggest pep rallies the campus has had in 
a long time. The boys built a large bon- 
fire which blazed brightly on the athletic 

While peppy cheerleaders urged, "Yell 
louder," students gave vent to the fami- 
liar words of "Dynamo," "C'mon Blue," 
and other Valley favorites. The next rally 
will be held on November 8, the night 
before Homecoming. Students are asked 
to attend and make the rally even more 
successful than the last. 


La Vie Collegienne, Friday, October 25, 1957 

LVC Leads 6-0 For 
Three Quarters But 
Loses 18-6 To Mules 

The Flying Dutchmen battled bravely 
against the Mules of Muhlenberg on Sat- 
urday afternoon, October 19, at Allen- 
town. But because of many injuries sus- 
tained in the Upsala game, the team 
suffered defeat by a score of 18-6. 

The students who attended the game 
saw an LVC team which bore little re- 
semblance to the team which started the 
Dutchmen's grid season with a win at 
Wilkes College on September 28. 

Starting for the injured co-captain, Joe 
Toy, at the right guard spot was Dave 
Miller. Replacing the other injured co- 
captain, Dick Smith, Ed Slezosky moved 
out of his regular left halfback post into 
the fullback spot. 

In Slezosky's position Coach Ellis 
McCracken placed Vern Magnuson. Mag 
was joined in the backfield by another 
freshman at right halfback, Les Holstein. 

Other changes in the line in addition 
to Joe Toy saw Neil Aharrah, a versatile 
center, moving left to replace Ron Wei- 
nel at left guard. Weinel is out of action 
for the season. In Aharrah's place, Mc- 
Cracken inserted Stanley Kaczorowski, 
center. Completing Lebanon Valley's 
patchwork line was Cyril Kardos, who 
takes the place of Tom Kunkle, junior 
right tackle. 

WAA Holds Picnic 

At Fink's Park 

Fink's Park was the setting for an in- 
troductory supper-hike given by WAA 
for prospective members. Eighty-five 
girls attended and enjoyed a picnic meal. 
WAA members Barbara Woodley, Bar- 
bara Johnson, Shirley Angle, and Jeanne 
Cunningham headed committees on re- 
freshments, clean-up, publicity, and or- 
ganization, respectively. 

Any girl interested in joining WAA 
must first earn 200 points to qualify for 
membership. She is then initiated and 
accepted into the organization. Barbara 
Johnson, president, Miss Betty Jane Bow- 
man, adviser, or any member can give 
additional information on the point sys- 
tem, meetings, and activities of the Wo- 
men's Athletic Association.

Lebanon Valley Faces Moravian 

In Parents-Underclassmen Game 

Valley Basketball 
Off To Early Start; 
Four Lettermen Back 

Twenty-two candidates for the Leba- 
tion Valley basketball team returned to 
the Lynch Memorial Gym at the close 
of Monday's classes to begin their work- 
outs. The 1957-58 court season will open 
for the Dutchmen on December 4 at Al- 
lentown, Pennsylvania, in a tilt with the 
Muhlenberg "Mules." 

Following a meeting on Friday, Octo- 
ber 18, with Coach "Rinso" Marquette, 
it was announced that a new procedure 
has been adopted for the current season. 
This procedure is unique in that begin- 
ning October 16 and continuing until 
November 1 the squad will be put 
through their daily paces by the team's 
captain, Donald Grider, and the senior 
members of the team. 

On November 1 Coach Marquette and 
his assistant, George Mayhoffer, will be- 
gin the task of shaping and trimming 
the squad to the specifications of the 
1957-58 schedule. 

Among the upperclassmen who report- 
ed for the first practice are Don Grider, 
Robert Dinerman, Peter McEvoy, and 
Aubrey Kershner, seniors; Richard Sa- 
vidge, Waldo Rich, and Bernard Buzgon, 
juniors; and Samuel Butz, Doug Ross, 
Martin Mihalek, Allison Kohler, and 
Barry Skaler, sophomores. 

New faces from the freshman class 
that were on hand are Bruce Buckwalter, 
Joseph Coen, Bill Wolk, Bill Ogden, 
Steve Wisler, and Larry Jenkins. 

Joining the squad at the end of foot- 
ball season will be Bill DeLiberty, junior, 
and Les Holstein, freshman.

Travel To Drexel 

Following Weekend 

Lebanon Valley's battle-scarred foot- 
ball eleven will be going after their sec- 
ond win of the season when they enter- 
tain Moravian College this Saturday af- 
ternoon before a Parents-Underclassmen 
Day crowd. 

The Dutchmen hold a seven-game edge 
in the series, winning twelve as against 
only five Moravian wins with one game 
ending in a tie. 

Last year's game, however, was an 
overwhelming victory for the Grey- 
hounds as they carried away a 33-2 vic- 

Coach Rocco Calvo has eight return- 
ing lettermen to attempt to match their 
five wins and three losses of last year. 

Two of their top backs and most con- 
sistent gainers are fullback George Hol- 
lendersky and halfback Paul Slifka. 

The following weekend Valley tra- 
vels to Drexel Institute where they will 
meet a young, fast squad. 

The six games played between the two 
schools have resulted in four wins for 
the Dragons and two for the Valley. 

The Dutchmen will be trying to avenge 
a 32-12 setback suffered last year at the 
hands of Drexel.

Valley Drops Home 
Opener To Upsala 
By 14-7 Score 

The Flying Dutchmen of Lebanon 
Valley battled Upsala College to a 
standstill in the first half before bowing 
14-7 on October 12 in the Valley's home 

LVC got its only scoring opportunity 
when a clipping penalty gave Upsala the 
ball on their own one-yard line. Tom 
Kunkle partially blocked an attempted 
punt and the Valley took over on the 
Vikings' seven. 

Bill DeLiberty carried to the one 
v/here Les Holstein plunged over right 
guard for the score. DeLiberty made it 
7-0 with a perfect placement. 

Upsala came right back in the final 
quarter and drove 13 yards before tying 
the score at 7-7. 

A Valley fumble of the following kick- 
off gave the Vikings the ball on the 
Valley 43. Several plays later Upsala 
tallied the winning touchdown through a 
host of Valley tacklers. 

The game, which was marred by in- 
juries and fumbles, was the first loss of 
the season for the Dutchmen. 

Co-captain Joe Toy, injured in the 
second quarter, was missed as the Vik- 
ings piled up yardage through poor Val- 
ley tackling . 

The end of the first half and the end 
of the second half both concluded on the 
LVC one yard line.

New Bio Labs and 
Dining Hall Center 
Of Building Program 

The building program, begun at 
LVC several years ago, is moving stead- 
ily forward this year. 

The two upper floors of the newly 
acquired Science Hall will be completely 
renovated to accommodate the biology 

Areas for a museum, greenhouse, four 
workrooms, lecture room, library, dark- 
room, three offices, and labs for botany, 
microbiology, histology, embryology, 
comparative anatomy, and general biol- 
ogy are in the planning stage. Actual 
work on this part of Science Hall de- 
pends on the results of the Annual Giv- 
ing Fund. 

Steady progress is being made, mean- 
while, on the ground floor of Science 
Hall where the chemistry department is 
located. Many new labs besides the ones 
now in use are near completion. They 
should be ready in a couple months. 
Plumbing and wiring are still needed 
in the physical chemistry, advanced 
chemistry, and quantitative analysis labs. 

The other major project, the new din- 
ing hall, is coming along on schedule. 
If everything continues as planned, it 
should be ready for use no later than 
September of next year. 

At the front entrance there will be an 
extended lobby and cloakroom. The main 
dining hall will hold at least 600 stu- 

Other facilities include a large modern 
kitchen, faculty dining area, dietician's 
office, and rooms for dishwashing, cold 
storage, and other utilitarian purposes. 

Tentative plans call for a cafeteria- 
style breakfast and lunch with table ser- 
vice for dinner.

"New Look" to Greet 
Expected Record Crowd 

When the alumni of LVC visit their 

alma mater on November 9, they will 
find not only some new additions to the 
campus, but also a Homecoming Day 
with a "new look." 

For the first time in the history of the 
college graduates in the classes of 1903, 
1908, 1913, 1918, 1923, 1928, 1933, 
1938, 1943, 1948, 1953 who were mem- 
bers of the football squad in their senior 
years will be special guests on campus. 

The Homecoming activities will begin 
with a registration period at 10 a.m. 
Following this will be a Coffee Hour 
during which alumni may renew old 

For the remainder of the morning ex- 
Valleyites will tour the campus and visit 
the new buildings — Gossard Memorial 
Library, Mary Capp Green Hall, and

In the afternoon loyal alumni will once 
more have an opportunity to cheer on 
the Dutchmen when LVC plays host to 
the Albright Lions at Lebanon High 
School Stadium.

"Science For a Day" 
Planned By Chem Club 

High school chemistry students from 
surrounding communities will be guests 
of the Chemistry Club at the "Science for 
a Day" program on December 7. 

These students will work in one of 
seventeen scientific projects in both ex- 
perimentation and instruction. Plans for 
this program were made at the last regu- 
lar meeting which was held November 4. 

A committee headed by Richard Hol- 
linger was appointed to select an appro- 
priately engraved plaque to be awarded 
to Joanne Grove Pieringer, the most re- 
cent winner of the Andrew Bender Mem- 
orial Award. This award, established in 
memory of a late head of the chemistry 
department, is given each year to a grad- 
uating chemistry major.

United We Stand . . . 

Inter-Society Dance is coming up — almost the only example of interorgani- 
zational cooperation on campus. This affair is planned through committees from 
each of the five societies which induce school spirit by virtue of reaching the largest 
possible number of students. 

Organizations continually complain about LVC being a suit-case college; they 
can't make plans for such and such a week-end because that's an "off wee*"*"H" — 
everyone will be going home. Excuses by the dozens have been manufactured dur- 
ing any discussion of this problem. 

The main complainers whose cry is, "There's never anything to do on campus," 
are the very ones who light out of the dorm the minute their last class is over on 
Friday afternoon. They are also the ones who never have time to help plan and 
organize a program of recreation or entertainment for the weekend. These should be 
the very people to work on plans which would interest people such as themselves. 

One solution to the problem woud lie in a cooperative effort between two or 
more clubs to sponsor jointly dances and other social functions. In this way more 
club members would be contacted to spur on the effort among the rest of the stu- 

Witness the Legionnaires. When this group sponsors a program or dance, 
everyone, but everyone, knows about it and is "hit for a ticket" by one of the vets 
personally and persistently. This prime example should offer inspiration to other 

Witness again the extraordinary exuberance of the freshman class this year. 
Upperclassmen marvelled at the energy and vitality these greenies exhibited when 
they arrived on campus and were subjected to the usual initiation rites. The more the 
Sophomores gave them, the more they came back for another dose. 

Are we to see this youthful spirit dry up and slowly disintegrate as the months 
roll on? Will these freshmen become indoctrinated with the absolute laissez-faire- 
ism of the upperclassmen? Why cannot this energy become as infective as the flu 
and permeate the organizations on this campus to spark them to a greater respect 
for themselves as clubs and to a wider interest in campus life?

During the month of October 270' 
resident students used the LVC Infirmary 
for a total of 750 treatments. Day stu-

73 times. These figures in comparison 
with a total of 1500 treatments for the

There were no cases definitely diagnosed 
as Asian flu. Rather, the term "flu-like

An Account of 

A Day of Victory 

Where are the Frosh? It doesn't seem 
as though they are on campus. There 
haven't been any of the familiar dinks or 
ties around for quite a while. 

Everyone at LVC knows by now that 
the annual Underclassmen's Day was a 
reversal, and the freshmen came out un- 
dressed (as far as dinks and ties are con- 
cerned). The sophomores had things very 
well under control on Friday, and on 
Saturday morning it didn't look as 
though "the tug" would be needed. 

The last event before the tug arrived 
and the freshmen had to get three points 
— a first place, or a second and third 
place. The class of '61 saved the day by 
taking their only first and second places, 
and set the stage for the tug-of-war. 

Because of the flu bug, the sopho- 
mores drew a handicap this year, and 
the tug was held on campus instead of 
across the banks of the Quittapahilla. 

Amid excited students, equally excited 
parents, and blaring freshmen and sopho- 
more bands, the two teams took their 
positions in the middle of campus and 
waited for the signal 

The first tug in this two-out-of-three 
contest went to the freshmen in about 
forty seconds. The second one took about 
three minutes to complete. 

When the final tug was over, 101 blue 
dinks flew into the air, and a shouting 
mob paraded down the streets of Ann- 
ville. They were led through stores, 
dorms, and on the main highway by an 
advance color guard and the frosh band. 

The activities subsided (because 
everyone was hungry) around noon 
time, and preparations were begun for 
the big evening — the Underclassmen's 
Day Dance. 

A vivid memory of the tug will re- 
main on campus for quite a while. The 
grass dug up by heels won't grow again 
until spring.

Comments Heard and 
Comments Unheard 


As I write this article, Sputnik II cir- 
cles the earth and history is made. The 
| waves of profound events break upon 
eternity and most of us sit and dabble in 
the backwash, throwing comments out 
into the void. But if comments are indi- 
cative of the effect of events on minds, 
then in those comments there must be 
some importance; for out of the effect 
created by past events grows the develop- 
ment of future events. 

During the past weeks profound events 
have occurred. Man has made strides 
toward the fulfillment of a desire which 
has lurked long in the imaginative part 
of his mind. He has begun what some 
day might be considered the human 
race's saga of exploration into earthless 

I have heard many comments on these 
events of past weeks and can probably 
match the number I heard with as many 
that I made myself. There are, however, 
a few I did not hear. These that were 
unheard are the reason for this article. 

I am as aware, I believe, of the impli- 
cations of the Russian fete as are most 
students on this campus. I am as sorry as 
most people are that the United States 
does not have a satellite; and I think, 
by now, that I have heard it stated 
enough times to know that the Russians 
have probably completely outstripped us 
in the field of inter-continental ballastic 
missiles. I am also aware of the meaning 
all of this has on our educational out- 
look, although I personally feel that 
many of the comments regarding liberal 
arts vs. technology are made without a 
consideration of the complexity of the 
inter-relationships between the education- 
al systems of the United States and Rus- 
sia and their respective societies or social 

All of these factors and many more 
are of grave importance and must cer- 
tainly be considered. But I am even more 
concerned that I have yet to hear any 
comment of optimism or hope concern- 
ing this new adventure which man has 
begun. I am rather disappointed that we 
are more concerned with "catching up" 
and "getting ahead" of the Russians than 
we are of being able to share equally in 
this new adventure. 

As a frank idealist I make a plea that 
we begin thinking with more boldness as 
members of the human race — that we do 
not continue limiting our thought to only 
those factors having direct relevance to 
us as one nation. 


Last pep rally for this year's foot- 
ball games will be held Friday, No- 
vember 8, on the athletic field. 

Roy Badgeley, president of the 
freshman class, will be in charge. 

Your support is earnestly requested 
to cheer the team to victory. 


The Green Blotter Club held its third 
meeting of the year in the conference

All the cold, cold waters in a raging 
sea could not douse this blazing fire I 
have in my heart; nor could the swiftest 
bolt of lightning shatter the pedestal on 
which my love stands. Passion upon pas-

jealous race. On — on through a never- 
ending wilderness I rush to meet my 
love. And my weary eyes behold the 
final lap. No less than Heaven's brightest 
glories could crowd out the glowing thrill 
of my journey's end. But alas.... oh, 
God! Like a flash of lightning it was 
bold and gone and what was left? Noth- 
ing. The journey was like a walking 
plague; but, the end held for me a bleed- 
ing, dying agony greater than even hell 
could rightly endorse. 

— Harry Mercer 

What lovely lyrics flow across our land. 
What mighty melodies that sweep away 
The tide of sadness and dismay. 
The soft caresses of a pleasant note 
Upon the breeze 

Which carries it through all the emptiness 
Of lonely solitude 

And fills this solitude with quiet ecstasy. 
No hand can hold it still; its' always leav- 

And yet it never leaves — 

An endless cache of winged beauty 

Usurping the profound thoughts of man 

And creeping into every niche 

As if 

It were made by some perfectionist 
For the single purpose of being there. 
Engulfing all it touches; 
Completely surrounding each item in its 

diffused path. 
Bound by nothing; 
It lingers forever, 

Although it may have faded years ago.

Dutchmen Score 20-0; 
Down Drexel Dragons 

The Flying Dutchmen took off last Sat- 
urday and spoiled the Drexel Dragons' 
Homecoming Day celebration before a 
crowd of 5,500 people. 

After a scoreless first quarter QB Bill 
DeLiberty took to the air and completed 
7 of 12 passes for 105 yards including 
two TD passes to freshman HB Vern 

In the middle of the second period 
defensive interference was called against 
Drexel on a DeLiberty-to-Holstein pass 
on the Dragon 40. After a 25-yard De- 
Liberty-to-Magnuson pass ; DeLiberty 
again hit Magnuson for 17 yards 
and a TD. Minutes later the Val- 
ley took over on downs and again scored, 
this time on a 23 yard pass to Magnuson 
in the end-zone. 

The third quarter was scoreless with 
the Dutchmen dominating the play. Mid- 
way through a rain-soaked fourth period 
the Valley got the ball via a Dragon punt 
and drove 40 yards for a TD with QB 
DeLiberty racing around the end for the 
last 10 yards. The PAT was missed, but 
was unnecessary since Drexel did not 
score and Valley won 20-0. 

Lebanon Valley Faces Albright 
In Annual Homecoming Contest 

McCracken Holds 

Wrestling Meeting 

Coach Ellis McCracken held the first 
wrestling meeting of the season on Tues- 
day night, November 5. At this meeting 
Mr. McCracken discussed a tentative 
practice schedule with the wrestling can- 
didates for the 1957-1958 campaign. 

In discussing the practice schedule the 
coach stated that he expected the boys to 
be ready for an all-out practice by Satur- 
day, December 7. Coach McCracken ex- 
plained that the practice would be held 
according to the same plan as an inter- 
collegiate match. There will be timed 
matches and point or pin decisions. 

Mr. McCracken said that there were 
fifteen candidates who showed up for the 
pre-season meeting held some weeks ago. 
If anyone is interested in the sport, it is 
not too late to put in his application for 
the team. Among other things the coach 
said that there is still a need for small 

The fellows will be working out on 
their own since Coach McCracken will 
be tied up with football for the next few

Wednesday, November 6. 


The Locker Room 

by John Metka 

Let's get to know the captains of our 
varsity sports here at the Valley. It is the 
wish of the sports staff of La Vie that the 
student body of LVC become acquainted 
with the leaders of our teams. 

Here is the first of our LVC captains. 
He is little Joe Toy, co-captain of the 
LV gridders. Joe is acclaimed by many 
as one of the outstanding line-backers in 
the East. Although Toy lacks the stature 
of most good linemen, he makes up for 
it in spirit and desire to win. 

Joe's ability to spark the team was re- 
alized after his injury in the Upsala 
game. After he was removed from the 
game, the Valley team seemed to lack 
some of the spirit they had when their 
captain was in his center line-backer slot. 

The team and the students are looking 
forward to Joe's return to the lineup, be- 
cause he is truly a great asset to the 

There will be an important meeting 
of all tennis candidates on Monday 
afternoon, November 11. Check the 
bulletin boards for the exact time. 

Vets Hold Early Lead 
In Intramural Program 

Intramural director Ned A. Linta an- 
nounced early this week that the LVC 
intramural program was off to a flying 
start. Although the season is relatively 
young already two sports are under 
way, two are being planned and one rec- 
ord has been broken. 

The record that was set was that of 
high total for a single game in bowling. 
Bill Kristich is the new record-holder 
with a high of 232. 

The sports that are already underway 
are bowling and volleyball. In bowling 
there is a first place tie between the 
Legionnaires A team and the Day Stu- 
dents each with eight wins and no losses. 
Kalo is out in front in the volleyball 
league with a 4-0 record. As far as team 
points are concerned the Legionnaires 
are ahead with 20 and the Day Students 
are a not too distant second with 16 
(these totals include the games of Friday, 
November 1). 

Dutchmen Seek Third 
Victory of Season 

Lebanon Valley's football team will be 
shooting for its third win of the season 
when they host winless Albright College 
in the annual Homecoming game tomor- 
row afternoon. 

Fresh from a 20-0 win over Drexel 
Tech, the Valley will be relying on the 
right arm of quarterback Bill DeLiberty 
and the running of freshmen halfbacks 
Les Holstein and Venard Magnuson and 
senior fullback co-captain Dick Smith. 

The forward wall will be fortified with 
such veterans as Neil Aharrah, Tom 
Kunkle, Ken Longenecker, and possibly 
co-captain Joe Toy. 

Coach John Potsklan has several out- 
standing players despite the dismal sea- 
son he has encountered so far. 

Junior quarterback Frank Sudock will 
pose the biggest obstacle to a Valley 
victory as he was one of the top passers 
last season and has been hitting with 
regularity this year. 

Other Lions to be watched are senior 
halfbacks John Kopp and John Cunning- 
ham and sophomore fullback Gerry 

Over the years Lebanon Valley has 
won 15 games from Albright and drop- 
ped 17, two ending in 6-6 ties. The Lions 
have gathered the last three contests in- 
cluding last year's 20-6 win. 

One of the bright spots for Albright 
this year has been the defensive play of 
the forward line which earned them a 0-0 
tie with Lycoming College. 

They have suffered losses to Bucknell, 
16-0; Scranton, 20-0; Muhlenberg, 18-14; 
i Gettysburg 37-13; Waynesburg, 21-18 
anl Moravian, 19-6. 

Lebanon Valley's wins have been over 
Wilkes, 21-0 and Drexel, 20-0 while los- 
ing to Upsala 14-7 and Muhlenberg, 


Next week the Flying Dutchmen travel 
to Collegeville for a tilt with Ursinus 

After opening the season with wins 
over Susquehanna, 6-0, and Drexel, 12-6, 
the Bears have dropped their last two 
games to Wilkes, 39-0 and Wagner, 13-0. 

Since the first time the two teams met 
in 1898 Ursinus has come off with seven 
wins while the Valley has been able to 
salvage only two games. 

Mr. Linta also announced that the 
first round of squash and hand ball is 
underway, and must be completed by 
November 14. Basketball will start on 
the 14th. Entries for singles and co-rec 
table tennis and badminton are now 
open. Director Linta said that there will 
also be a special co-rec bowling pro- 
gram, and that through the efforts of Dr. 
Miller there will be swimming on Thurs- 
day nights.

34th Year — No. 4 

Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Penna. Friday, November 22, 1957 

Science Program to Draw 
Students From Seven Counties 

Student Activity Fee 
May Be Administered 
By Student-Faculty 

Science Departments 
Cooperate in Project 

The science division of Lebanon Val- 
ley College has announced plans for the 
third annual "Science for a Day" project 
to be held on this campus on December 
7, 1957. Since the first meeting of high 
school students was held with twenty-one 
in attendance, the program has advanced 
to include 108 students and instructors 
from a seven-county area. 

The meeting has a two-fold purpose: 
to stimulate high school students to an 
interest in the practical and enjoyable as- 
pects of science, and to motivate high 
school teachers to promote interest in the 
sciences, especially as a vocation. The 
program has been designed with these 
objectives in mind. 

After registration and a welcome from 
Dr. Howard M. Kreitzer, Dean of the 
College, and Dr. Howard A. Neidig, di- 
rector of the division of science, students 
will meet in the laboratories to begin 
their projects. Assisted by members of 
the Chemistry Club, Beta Beta Beta, and 
the physics and the mathematics depart- 
ments, the visitors will perform various 
group and individual projects in all fields 
of science. 

One of the most timely features of the 
day will be in the field of physics in 
which participants in 'Science for a Day" 
will consider the physics of orbital mo- 
tion, including observation of gravital 
attraction, centripetal force, angular mo- 
tion, and the energy of motion. 

The visitors will hear an address by 
Dr. Cletus Oakley, a man well qualified 
in the field of mathematics. Dr. Oakley 
is chairman and full professor in the 
department of mathematics at Haverford 
College. All LVC students are invited to 
attend this lecture. 

The "Science for a Day" project is 
made possible through a grant from the 
E. I. DuPont de Nemours Company, Inc. 

Thirteen Initiated 
At Pi Gamma Meeting 

The main feature of the October meet- 
ing of Pi Gamma Mu was the initiation 
of new members into the society. Initi- 
ated into full membership were Charles 
Lightner, Mark Miller, Jerald Bachman, 
Rebecca Myers, Chester Rebok, Virginia 
Smedley, John Tartaglin, and Richard 

Philip Feather, David Meder, Walter 
Miller, David Long, and Stephen Wald- 
man were admitted as junior members. 

Speaking at a special Student-Faculty 
Council meeting held Monday, Novem- 
ber 11, President Frederic K. Miller sug- 
gested that the Council take over han- 
dling a percentage of the student activity 
fee. He intimated that the administration 
would be delighted to have the students 
supervise this work. 

Items included under this plan are 
funds for La Vie Collegienne, Quirtapa- 
hilla, the College Band, Men's Day Stu- 
dent Congress, Men's Senate, Women's 
Commuter Council, Resident Women's 
Student Government Association, Stu- 
dent-Faculty Council, and the Student 
Christian Association. 

President Miller feels that this duty will 
strengthen the position of Student-Fac- 
ulty Council on the campus. Students 
must handle funds to the satisfaction of 
the organizations. 

The students will not take over ad- 
ministering funds to the infirmary, ath- 
letics, and non-organizational or miscel- 
laneous purpose, which include such ex- 
penses as additional light and janitor 
services required for dances. 

In reference to the coming rise in fees 
at the college Miller said that the stu- 
dents will continue to pay the same per- 
centage of their education — 70-75 per 
cent. Since the costs of education are 
going up, the prices must rise here to 
maintain the same percentage. Overall 
increase was estimated at about 7 to 8 
per cent. 

The matter of the College Lounge was 
mentioned next. President Miller said 
that the $2,600 which the students raised 
would be used for a snack bar. Progress 
has been made in planning and ordering 
of materials. Work should start within 
the next week, President Miller added. 
The student-raised funds will be used for 
the purchase of equipment. 

The Council expressed hope that they 
will again have an opportunity to discuss 
further the College Lounge plans. 

Mr. Charles B. Shaw, librarian of 
Swarthmore College, will give an il- 
lustrated lecture on "Our Typograph- 
ical Heritage" — the first college-spon- 
sored lecture to be held in the Audio- 
Visual room of the Gossard Memorial 
Library. It will be held on Thursday 
evening, November 21, at 8 p.m. 

SEA Southern District 
Elects Valley Student 
At Hershey Convention 

Margaret Garber, a sophomore at Leb- 
anon Valley College, was elected presi- 
dent of the Southern Convention District 
of the Pennsylvania Student Education 
Association (Future Teachers of Amer- 
ica) at the annual meeting of the organi- 
zation at Hershey Junior College, No- 
vember 9. 

Miss Garber will supervise the activi- 
ties of all college chapters and high 
school clubs in York, Franklin, Adams, 
Cumberland, Dauphin, Lebanon, and 
Lancaster counties. The purpose of these 
chapters and clubs is to interest young 
people in becoming teachers. Miss Gar- 
ber is the second student to bring this 
distinction to the LVC campus in the last 
three years. 

The other delegates to the convention 
were Donald Hole and Charles Brightbill. 
They were accompanied to the meeting 
by Dr. Gilbert McKlveen, adviser to the 
George D. Gossard chapter of the Penn- 
sylvania Student Education Association 
at LVC. 

The Student Education Association on 
the LVC campus, guided by Dr. Mc- 
Klveen and president Charles Brightbill, 
are sponsoring several student-centered 
events this year. Future activities include 
a proposed bake sale and candy sale. 
Plans are also being discussed for the 
annual Christmas Party slated for De- 
cember 12. This program will be 
under the supervision of the fresh- 
man members. Chairmen of the 
committee are Marcia Paullin and Carol

Thanksgiving Thoughts 

Thanksgiving is not forthcoming from 
a placid mind. It is a spurt of uncontrol- 
able exultation arising from a mind of 
doubts and fears, as well as from a mind 
tb at is self-knowing. 

A child grows and forgets his self- 
knowledge. He grows to be somebody 
about your age or my age — a somebody 
lost in the confusion of a superficially 
real world. He forgets self-knowledge be- 
cause it is confusing and troublesome; 
there is enough trouble elsewhere — there 
must be none in the mind. The awful 
and lovely questions of Good and God, 
ol Bad and Death are lost in the super- 
imposed tranquility of the sophisticated 
mind. There is no thanksgiving in such 
a mind, for there is nothing from which 
to be delivered. All is tranquility. All 
is nothingness. 

Thanksgiving is a thing of the mind. 
Ii is a thing wrought from struggle. If 
cne wishes to thank God, he must strug- 
gle to do so. It is not easy. Nothing 
about God is easy. 

But out of the struggle there comes a 
spurt of happiness about living — an in- 
describable feeling that somehow encom- 
passes all of existence. This is Thanks- 

Thanksgiving is a difficult and elusive 
thing. It is alien to our minds just as 
struggle is alien to our minds. 

One doesn't rediscover thanksgiving 
easily. (SRS). 

Vets Hold Service 

The Legionnaires of Lebanon Valley 
College held a public service on Monday, 
November 11, in the Audio- Visual room 
of the Gossard Memorial Library. The 
service honored veterans of past wars. 

The order of service was conducted by 
Donald L. Harper, chaplain of the Le- 
gionnaires. The message was entitled 
"Our Search for Peace," in which the ur- 
gent need for peace, both now and in the 
future, was stressed. 

The meeting ended with a prayer ask- 
ing God that all men may live in peace 
with Him and their fellow men.

Members Selected On 
Variety of Achievements 

Eleven Lebanon Valley students will 
be listed in the 1957-58 "Who's Who in 
American Colleges and Universities." 
"Who's Who" gives recognition to out- 
standing students on more than 700 cam- 
puses throughout the United States. 

The students selected are Thomas Car- 
many, Helen Epting, Darwin Glick, Joan 
Heindel, Michael Hottenstein, Barbara 
Klinger, Virginia Smedley, Jack Stearns, 
David Teates, Sandra Weit, and Susan 

As a basis of selection, a student's 
scholarship, his participation and leader- 
ship in academic and extra-curricular ac- 
tivities, his citizenship and service to the 
school, and his promise of future use- 
fulness are considered. 


The first person on the list is Thomas 
B. Carmany. Tom, a true non-conformist, 
hails from Lebanon and is a pre-med 
student with a major in chemistry. He 
has been on the Dean' list for four semes-

CHRISTMAS: To Keep Or to Celebrate? 

Throngs of people doing last minute shopping, a Santa Claus on every down- 
town street corner, beautiful and costly lights and decorations put up even before 
Thanksgiving, people sending and receiving greeting cards in large quantities, two 
weeks' vacation from lectures and homework, lots of parties and dances, people 
sighing, "I wish Christmas was over" — is this what Christmas means to you? Is this 
the real Christmas? 

Year after year these questions are raised again and again, until they have be- 
come almost trite. Nevertheless they are important if we are not to lose the true 
meaning of Christmas in the smog of materialism. The words of the angels on 
the first Christmas eve promised "peace on earth" and "good will toward men." 
Today people all over the world are searching for that peace and good will. In 
light of the present circumstances many fear that it will never come. But as we 
celebrate Christmas we should realize that there is one and only one way to find 
this peace, and that way is through the Prince of Peace. 

Until children learn about the wise men before they learn about Santa Claus; 
until students look forward to Christmas as more than a vacation from school; until 
organizations and even churches stop looking at Christmas mainly as a time for 
parties and special programs; until merchants stop using the Christmas season 
as a time to fill their own pockets; until the true Christmas spirit stops coming in 
bottles; until "Joy to the World" is emphasized more than "Santa Claus is coming 
to Town;" until we substitute Christ's cross for the unknown quantity X in Christ- 
mas; until we can honestly wish a "Merry Christmas" to the Negro down in Little 
Rock and the Communist boss in Moscow, as well as to our minister or our next- 
door neighbor; until we observe Christmas, or more appropriately, keep Christmas 
in the spirit of the new-born Christ child — we can never even come close to the 
ideal enunciated by the host of angels on the first Christmas Eve. We should not 
have to remind ourselves to put Christ in Christmas. HE was there first. We should 
keep Christmas for Christ, not keep Christ for Christmas. 

As we return home for the Christmas season, let us keep in mind the events 
of the first Christmas and the real significance and importance of this day. And 
when the season is over, let us keep its spirit with us throughout the year; and like 
the shepherds, let us return praising and glorifying God for everything we have 
heard and seen. (DZ) 


It's 3 o'clock in the morning. How quiet the dorm is at this hour. Everyone 
sleeping. I walk into the parlor and see the Christmas decorations silently hanging, 
and it reminds me Christmas is coming. 

Christmas — what a multitude of emotions that word evokes. I look out the 
window into the cold, speechless night and I think, "This Christmas is going to be 
extra-special," just like a thousand other people have thought. There's something 
about a cold December night that makes you think that. 

But are there not some who look out into that same cold December night, and 
nothing but fear pervades their spirits? Are there not some who despair and dread? 
The still, cold night makes me think of them too. I know I am fortunate.

The administration has cancelled the 
proposed College Lounge loan of $50,000, 
although it was passed by a 16-11 vote 
in the Council. Further, the administra- 
tion has decided upon renovating the 
basement of the old Carnegie Library 
building. The work along these fines 
has already been started. 

To determine what should be included 
in the College Lounge facilities, a com- 
mittee of five students has been appoint- 
ed from the Council to aid the adminis- 
tration in its decisions. 

The Council assumed by a unanimous 
vote the responsibility of distributing 
the part of the activities fee that was 
granted them by the administration. 

In addition, the problems, presented 
through the suggestion box in the Student 
Personnel Office, concerning the lava- 
tories in Kreider Hall and the additional 
milk at the main meals are now in active

A coin, a little sliver of metal

So also is man fashioned by the hands of

Unless supported by the soul's standard

Unless it proved the worth of its metal.

Butz Leads Scoring 
In First Valley Win 

Lebanon Valley's basketball team play- 
ed host to the varsity of Pennsylvania 
Military College on Saturday night, De- 
cember 7. 

Valley was led by Sam Butz's scoring 
punch. Pete McEvoy and Bill DeLiberty 
also contributed outstanding floor games 
as the Valley won 84 to 79. 

The team, short by modern basketball 
concepts, more than made up for its 
lack of height with its hustle and team- 

The high point man for Valley was 
Sam Butz with 24, followed by Pete 
McEvoy and Bill DeLiberty with 14. 
PMC was led by John Dalgaard who had 
24 points. 

At halftime PMC was ahead 40 to 
38, but Valley came back strongly in the 
second half to take the lead which they 
never again relinquished. With only one 
minute to play Valley led by one point 
but the clutch foul shooting of Don Gri- 
der, team captain, put the game out of 

Mules Defeat Dutchmen 
In Season's Opener 

Lebanon Valley basketball team travel- 
ed over ice covered roads to Allentown, 
the home of Muhlenberg College, on 
Wednesday night, December 4, only to 
go down to defeat to the tune of 79-59. 

Although the score indicates other- 
wise, the game proved an interesting con- 
test as Muhlenberg's overwhelming height 
was partially overcome by the Dutch- 
men's speed and aggressiveness. 

LV held up against the Mules in all 
the statistical departments except the 
shooting percentage from the field. Here 
Muhlenberg outplayed the Blue and 
White by making a good percentage of 
the shots taken. 

Leading the Valley offensively was 
Captain Don Grider with 15 and Bill 
DeLiberty with 10. In all, the game 
showed that Valley fans are in for an 
exciting season.

colleges, high schools, churches, or civic 
groups outside this area should contact 
the college for an appointment for a

closely as possible the original drawings 
of Leonardo da Vinci and emphasizing 
Leonardo's ideas of construction.

La Vie editorial staff woud like to 
present the second of our varsity cap- 
tains here at Lebanon Valley. Although 
football has been over for some time, 
we introduce to you our second football 
captain, Dick Smith. 

Dick, who hails from Carlisle, the 
home of Dickinson College, attended one 
year at Dartmouth College before coming 
to LVC. 

Smitty turned in a very respectable 
season this year as he held down a line- 
backer position on offense. Dick, a biol- 
ogy major, hopes to go into teaching. 


For car owners there will be a spring- 
driven car, a variable speed drive with 3 
different speeds of rotation, a transmis- 
sion which is a forerunner of modern 
automobile differential. 

Music students will be interested in an 
automatic drum which is wheeled along 
the ground and works on somewhat the 
same principle as a music box. 

A pyramid-shaped parachute of linen, 
a flying machine consisting of wooden 
frame, two huge wings, a windlass, and a 
series of ropes and pulleys, and an "aer- 
ial screw," the forerunner of the modern 
heliocopter will be of interest to science 

Many implements of war, hydraulic 
devices, and numerous other inventions 
will be included. 

Viewers of the IBM exhibition in other 
display centers have been amazed to dis- 
cover that this fifteenth-century artist had 
conceived of mechanisms which were not 
practically developed until centuries later. 

Students in the humanities classes will 
be especially interested in this display in 
connection with their reading of The 
Romance of Leonardo da Vinci.
